“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” Romans 15:7


Communities of Faith

A sanctuary within our community.

At First United we believe Jesus would welcome all people just as they are, without judgement or expectation. We continue to offer a community ministry with pastoral care to a community grappling with trauma, grief and oppression.

By becoming a Community of Faith, you can support the ongoing work to provide the Downtown Eastside community a space to connect with our faith, and each other, for hope and healing.

As part of our Communities of Faith program you’ll receive invitations to participate in our Advent series and other activities regarding the progress of the Redevelopment Capital Campaign. Community donations of $5,000+ are listed on our website and in our annual report.

Make a gift on behalf of your church today, or start your own community fundraising page:
